31st January, 2006

Production began January 29th, 2006 on Comedy Central TV sit-com pilot, Gay Robot!!


Gay Robot
is a character that was developed and voiced already on a CD by comedian Nick Swardson, one of my co-stars in, and writer of Benchwarmers (opening at U.S. cinemas in April). Unlike Benchwarmers, where they used my voice for the character, in Gay Robot, I am an extension of Nick's character in that I am in the robot machine/costume, bringing the visuals to life, while Nick is voicing the character through a microphone on set. So not a huge star vehicle for me personally.

This robot is very close to the same design as my robot character, 'Number Seven' in Benchwarmers, largely because Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions who produced Benchwarmers is also producing Gay Robot, and they came back to Stan Winston Studios, and me, to reprise our efforts as the robot team.
